MEDIA, Penn. (October 13, 2016)—Apacheta Corporation, a mobile business solutions provider, recognized the strength of its two-year relationship with Brightree, a provider of cloud-based clinical, business management and billing software solutions for the post-acute care industry. Apacheta and Brightree began their relationship in June 2014 to offer HME/DME providers an integrated mobile delivery management solution to significantly reduce costs and errors, improve productivity, increase billing processes and enable better patient experiences.
Since then, the companies have seen close to a 60 percent compounded monthly growth rate (CMGR) in customer adoption of the mobile technology. The two continue to bring significant benefits to providers adopting electronic delivery solutions, such as a 25 percent reduction in overhead costs by streamlining order and delivery processes, as well as decreases in improperly executed paperwork, paper cost and overtime hours. Customers using the Brightree-Apacheta solution are benefiting from significantly improved cash flow and see on average their delivery-to-billing confirmation time shrink from three days to less than an hour.
“We saw Brightree’s customers were gaining significant business benefits in automating their back-office operations, but still searching for an all-encompassing, cost-effective mobile solution to automate their paper-intensive delivery processes,” said Gregg Timmons, CEO of Apacheta. “Through our partnership with Brightree, we have created a mobile solution that dramatically reduces costs with a significant improvement in cash flow. Our mobile solution easily connects into the Brightree system to enable electronic scheduling, routing and proof of delivery functions on commonly available handhelds running Android or iOS. Additionally, our integration extends to Brightree's document management system to enable billers to begin the confirmation process within minutes of a delivery, which can be as much as a 98 percent reduction in cycle time to start the confirmation process leading to quicker reimbursements. Our partnership is what providers have been craving, and because they’ve had a taste of it for two years, I don’t believe they want to do business any other way.”
Post-acute care providers who have moved from manual paper processes to technology-based software solutions through Apacheta and Brightree are experiencing greater marginal gain on their overall return on investment (ROI). By investing in a mobile delivery logistics solution, providers are able to allocate the money they are saving in paper processing, fuel expenses and billing services to other aspects of the business, which alleviates pain from recent reimbursement cuts.
“Our relationship with Apacheta has proven to be incredibly beneficial to both us and providers,” said Steve Rogers, vice president of product management at Brightree. “Together, we have been able to meet the needs of our customers and provide a powerful response to the challenges facing HME providers. Business efficiencies, better patient care and enhanced operational visibility are key benefits for providers using the Brightree system, and Apacheta is a critical partner in our ecosystem. As we both continue to grow, we look forward to continuing to strengthen this relationship and seeing what more we can accomplish.”
At the Brightree Summit on October 31 alongside Medtrade, Apacheta will present on the benefits of using a mobile delivery solution that automates and streamlines workflow management. Medtrade offers HME/DME providers the opportunity to build successful relationships, and provides insight on the ever-changing legislative and regulatory landscape. Brightree’s Summit offers attendees the ability to connect with current customers and learn more about how they improve business efficiencies. The Summit will also host several informational sessions and hands-on training courses for those wanting to learn more about Brightree’s offerings.
Apacheta and Brightree intend to continue and expand upon their relationship to create furthered success for their customers. To learn more about Apacheta and Brightree, visit apacheta.com and brightree.com.
